    I was most impressed by the beautiful red Torii gate outside and the immaculate shrine interior (see photos). During your visit, make sure to see the adjoining park as well. There is plenty of paid parking available and some shops and restaurants across the street.

    I visited Shiraito Falls on a misty evening and this place was magical. I am sure it is beautiful no matter when you come. There is a small fee you pay when you park but after you are free to walk around and view the waterfalls. The short trails are well maintained and you get great views everywhere you look. I find it fascinating how the water just comes out of the cliffs. There are signs posted with information on the geology of the area that are interesting reads. I would like to come back here and explore more.

    On a clear day, Lake Tanuki is probably one of the best places to be for views of Mt. Fuji. During the summer months, Mt. Fuji might be cloud covered or the sky is hazy, so you may or may not see it this time of year. Lake Tanuki is a pretty little lake with a bike trail around it, a camp ground, playground, and a few observation decks. The road leading here is well maintained and there is plenty of parking.

    This place actually a great place to see Mount Fuji, but the day I went was cloudy. Next to this place, there are rest area and a food village.

    I have been stunned at how a small sip of this wonderful water (inexpensive bottles available, came home to Oregon, USA with me) energized my whole day, on the day I visited this and nearby shrines. I sat and watched the ducks, felt the energy of the water and was filled with gratitude for the chance to be here. It's not exciting, just amazing.

    A place to learn more about Mt.Fuji.
    Inside, you walk up the circular slope, pretending to climb Mt.Fuji. There are information along the way to read what it is like to really climb it. There is a small theatre showing videos of Mt.Fuji.
    At the top, you can see the real Fuji. It was cloudy when we visited there sadly.
    A small gift show selling Mt.Fuji items.
    The building itself is beautiful. Reflection on the water is just like Mt.Fuji reflecting on the lake.

    The little Waterfall is of the beaten track. If you drive all be more accessible. Very rustic as it is in a small village. Not much tourist there.

    I was with my 11 and 14 years old son. They were enjoying this place very much. A lot to see in the museum itself with displaying lots of different stones and rocks where they cane from all around the world. It’s quite interesting.

    The most enjoyable activity was to finding the gems. Kids are so into finding the little gems. Me and my husband also joining them to find the gems. It was fun we as adults do enjoy the activity.

    One reminder! There is a little shop outdoor with a lady selling lucky draw prizes with different kind of stones. We were very lucky that day got first prize and we have chosen a huge stone that grow in the dark. We were so happy!

    Perhaps it's just that I am a spiritual healer, but this shrine brought me to tears. In sight of the glorious mountain, Whatever your faith or inclinations, add this to your trip if you can, just sit quietly, breathe and feel the healing love of the goddess/spirits. Your entire day/trip will be more energetic and cheerier. And buy an amulet.... to anchor your memories.

    When I stopped here the weather was quite cloudy so I didn't get the great view of Fuji-san like so many others have but I got peaks through the clouds here and there.

    As someone that doesn't speak English very well I found it difficult to order as most things are in Japanese but eventually I settled for pointing at what ice cream I wanted on the sign and thanking them in Japanese.

    Would visit again. Very lovely.

    Rest area nestled in the plateau of Asagiri highlands, famous for his dairy products. There are many shops and restaurants where you can purchase or eat those delicacies

    This place is like a bird park, but they focus on owl. Inside there plenty of flowers too. Close encounter with owl for additional 500 yen.

    Climb is such a funny word as it is not a technical mountain. It is a trek. I can highly recommend doing the trip either side of the 'climbing' season of July/August unless you want to share the hill with up to 3000 other people. I think we saw maybe a dozen others on the hill. I was going to do the trek on my own but I'm glad I didn't! Not lacking in experience but more having the local knowledge of a guide. Plus the group motivation and support which I'll elaborate on later. There are only a couple of companies that do off season trips. Only the MyTokyoGuide company seemed to be running June trips. I can not recommend them highly enough. The trip up was fantastic and well paced with an overnight stay at 2700 metres. I normally suffer at altitude but surprisingly apart from the usual shortness of breath there wasn't much going on for me above 3000m. No headache was a bonus.A funny thing happened on the way to the train station; the soles of my hiking boots fell off. The cushioning rubber between the sole and shoe had degraded. So I went back to the hotel and threw my flat sole sand shoes on. The guide wasn't impressed but I didn't have any options.
    The trip down was BRUTAL. The descending route is up to 4 hours of straight down 45 degrees gravel and rock ledges. So I highly recommend a a boot with a heel over sneakers. It is a arduous grind down and very hard on the knees. The group motivated and supported each other through this which is the value of being in a group.
    Tips:
    Ive never been a trekking pole kinda guy and opted out of taking any. The guide gave me his for the decent. I would never have made it down without the poles. So he was well tipped at the end of the trip. Tipping is not practice in Japan but he was appreciative.
    Hydrate well a few days before the trip. The company recommends 2 litres of water but you need a minimum of 6 litres. 2 to the over night stay. 2 to the top and 2 for going down. You can buy water at the hut but no where else in off season.
    June is pre-season and the trails are clear of the debris of altitude sickness. June is rainy season too. I wasn't expecting a view but it was more of a bucket list thing.
    If you have made it to the rim push yourself to the top. It's an ugly disused weather station but it is the top of Japan! We were looking for a selfie summit sign but we were disappointed. Alas we were informed by our guide the tall granite inscripted post announced the summit.
    I bought some builders gaiters from the hardware. It's just a cloth cover that prevents stuff getting in your shoes that did the trick.
    Apart from dinner you are pretty much on your own for meals. Grab a sandwich for the hike up to the overnight hut. So take some endurance snacks and bars. I fuelled up well on protein bars and energy gels. A banana for breakfast would have been nice. In fairness I think breakfast was included but the group decided to make an early start.

    Hey guys. For this review, I would like to introduce this shop. This place got so many souvenirs from Shizuoka. For example, Starbucks inside got a tumbler with the Mt. Fuji mark outside. This place has the tax free service. On your way back from Mt. Fuji? Let's spare some of your time shopping here. It is near to Fujinomiya station so you can walk or you might have to come here by the car. I oftenly shop here and I see people from China, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka. Since I never seen any Thai people come here so wish I can get to see them.
    ยินดีต้อนรับนะครับ
